This document updates "Accommodations: Assisting Students with Disabilities. A Guide for Educators," published by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) in 2003. This document is written to assist school district personnel and parents when making decisions about the use of accommodations by students with disabilities in instructional situations. The first section includes information about the importance of providing access to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for students with disabilities. This section also describes legal requirements and eligibility considerations, along with a framework for making decisions about accommodations. The second section presents an explanation of four categories of accommodations and related student characteristics. As appropriate, accommodations allowed on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test® (FCAT), the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test® 2.0 (FCAT 2.0), and the Florida Alternate Assessment (FAA) are noted. The last section deals with implementing and monitoring the effects of using accommodations. The Appendix includes a quick reference guide to instructional accommodations.
